Ask a Lawyer 2014

Posted by Holly on

Happy Law Day!

Every year on Law Day, the Oklahoma Bar Association offers free legal advice to Oklahomans who call their hotline. You can speak with an attorney about a legal problem or a legal question you might have at NO COST TO YOU.

Call anytime between 9am and 9pm today (May 1, 2014). The statewide toll-free number is 1-800-456-8525. Tulsa residents should call 918-838-8770.

You’ll also want to watch OETA tonight at 7pm for the annual ASK A LAWYER television program. This year focuses on the ideals of democracy and the understanding that government works best with the consent of those being governed. We'll hear the story of a woman who is a survivor of modern-day slavery. We'll learn about efforts underway to prevent human trafficking. We'll meet an Oklahoman whose home was destroyed by a tornado and how a lawyer helped her pick up the pieces. We'll explore water rights in Oklahoma, an issue that is becoming increasingly serious as the drought wears on. We'll also take a look back at how politics and corruption led to a scandal that rocked Oklahoma's highest court and how the reform that followed became a model for the rest of the nation.

ASK A LAWYER will also provide the answer to some of the most frequently-asked legal questions from today’s hotline. That’s tonight at 7pm on OETA. askalawyer2014.jpg
